Balkan Travel

June 10, 2011


My 2011 Balkan adventure
  • started with Moldova (including Transnistria);
  • then flew to Belgrade to go south to other stops in Serbia;
  • then drove across Kosovo, stopping mainly as Pristina;
  • followed by Macedonia (Skopje & Ohrid); 
  • Albania (Berat & Tirana); 
  • Montenegro (Budva & Kotor);
  • Dubrovnik at the southern tip of Croatia;
  • then into Bosnia (Mostar & Sarajavo, with a day trip to Višegrad.
In prior years, I had traveled in Romania, Bulgaria, and other parts of Croatia.

With new guides/drivers in each country, my travels were arranged Bestway, offering the first itinerary across all countries of the former Yugoslavia (plus Albania).
